Turner Headed to Dolphins

Jim Turner has closed the book on the college game and is heading pro with the Miami Dolphins.

It was just more than a month ago that Jim Turner was introduced as the new Offensive Line Coach for the Red Raiders.

But Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville in a news conference on Wednesday announced that Turner will now take that talent to South Beach and take over as the Offensive Line Coach of the Miami Dolphins, effective immediately.

Following the firing on Mike Sherman at Texas A&M, Turner left the Aggies and made the move to Texas Tech to take over a dismal offensive line.

At Texas A&M, Turner put together the fourth-best O-Line in the country as his line allowed just nine sacks all season long averaging just .69 sacks allowed per game.

This move to Miami comes at no surprise as on Friday, Sherman was hired to be the new offensive coordinator for the Dolphins under new head coach Joe Philbin.

With his hire, Turner followed suit and joined his former boss at Miami to try and make its offensive line as dynamic as the one he created in College Station.

Tuberville also hinted at that he has Turner’s replacement in place and the new offensive line coach for the Red Raiders will be announced on Thursday.
